US young Republicans ‘much inspired’ by Hungary government
Referring to the Republican youth organisation recognising Orban with their John Foster Dulles Award last year, Wax said it had been a step in their efforts to build links between conservative movements, which he saw as key in Transatlantic cooperation. He said the Hungarian government’s activities were unique in Europe and even in the broader Western world in general.
Wax said Hungary’s For Fundamental Rights Centre (Alapjogokert Kozpont) and similar institutions were crucial in building a “counter-narrative” to leftist trends. He said it was “refreshing” to see that countries like Hungary embraced such values as supporting families and child birth or reinforcing their borders.
Wax arrived in Hungary as an organiser of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) Hungary, which will take place in Budapest in May.
